Exhibit A: Never Trust Anyone Who Calls Themselves "Insider"

"Indeed [Barbara Walters'] late, great ABC News boss, Roone Arledge, advised her not to do The View, saying it would ruin her hard-earned news reputation.

Instead, The View has earned her an also well-deserved reputation as a great broad, with a great bawdy- [sic] and the quick wit and sense of humor that entails. "

As with so many other things, Roone Arledge was 100% right. Barbara Walters has zero news credibility left. Does anyone think of her as a journalist anymore?
